Apathy…

So I came across a poem I wrote a long time ago that I thought I’d share with you all. Let me know what you think and happy Friday! Have a great weekend, oh and happy birthday to all of us cancers too. 🙂

Apathy

What is this deep sense of apathy
That overcomes me at times?
I sometimes wonder where it comes from

And how it is that I cannot really give a damn
About what is going on around me
Or about other people in the world

Who are poor, starving and suffering
From so many unfathomable afflictions
Caused by the indulgence and indifference

Of people like me who do not
Directly support the pain, agony
And deprivation of others

But who also in turn do not
Do anything that would alleviate
The misery and provide necessities

To those who are way less fortunate
And truly needy and deserved of
Our benevolence

And thus we indirectly maintain
The discontentment of so many others
In the world that we could help to change
